Good Things Foundation are leading the Reboot UK project to investigate how digital can help people in poverty to improve their health and wellbeing.
Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, the project is run in conjunction with partners Homeless Link, Mind, and Family Fund.
Phase 1 of Reboot UK ran for 12 months from September 2015, researching and developing pilot interventions before putting these models into practice in the community. Phase 1 supported 1,000 beneficiaries to use digital technologies to improve their health and wellbeing.
Following the success of this pilot, consortium partners joined together for phase 2 of Reboot UK (March - September 2017). During this time 35 organisations were supported to deliver digital support to excluded people.
Through these organisations, 1,412 multiply excluded people were helped to develop digital skills and experience, leading to:
Recovery powered by digital
Re-integration powered by digital
Improved outlook powered by digital.
